Witching hour is almost upon us and is arguably the best time of year on Ibiza. While the summer may be through and the last of the closing parties well and truly over, Halloween comes as one last occasion to throw a party of spectacular proportions. A time for the island’s locals and workers to catch up and let loose after a busy summer, October 31st is always a popular date in the diary. Yet in true Ibiza style, the parties come supercharged and attract all corners of the globe for a day-to-night of spooky, macabre mischief. You’ll want more than just a pair of cat ears for these events… ghoulish costumes at the ready for our run down of the hottest Halloween fiestas!
A place synonymous with avant-garde production and grandiose theatrics, you can be sure the bar will be high for a killer night at HEART Ibiza. Their ‘Creepy Wax Museum’ Halloween party hosted within the glamorous Marina Botafoch nightclub is one for those who like a scare-fest with style. DJs Le Fleur, Mind The Gap and Tuccillo are just a few of the acts set to create a thrilling soundtrack with their collective house and techno flavours. Expect sensationally freakish entertainment, performances and a fantastic rooftop terrace to take it all in. Doors open at 11pm.
A stone’s throw away along the promenade, the neighbouring glitzy dinner and cabaret venue Lío is set to host a ‘Wild Halloween’. Upscale and full of extravagance, for this night-time hotspot a touch of sophistication and island spirit meld to create unforgettable, action-packed shows. The night begins at 9pm with a themed meal around the centring stage. Take in the wicked sights while sampling Lío’s finest fare or arrive past midnight for the start of the party. Ibiza’s favourite DJ quadruplet Melon Bomb will be on playlist duty bringing their trademark, no-frills-fun energy alive.
On the east side of the island, an indoor and outdoor extravaganza is on the cards at Las Dalias. The popular hippy market space will see a takeover by the promoters, MISCHIEF. The concept is the brainchild of DJs Tom Grimes, George Blackbear, Neil Thorogood and Joshua Holland who’ve seen two seasons of spooktacular Halloween events. Further acts to serve their fright-night selections include Doorly and Jaime Fiorito. If you’ve missed MISCHIEF’s previous shenanigans then now’s your moment! Gates open at 8pm.
The hip penthouse space at Sir Joan Hotel isn’t one to miss out on an outlandish party, either. Be spoiled with views out over Ibiza Town while sipping on punchy cocktails, for this year’s Halloween the invite is to ‘The Voodoo Club’. Don your wardrobe’s scariest for a night filled with the sounds of Vanuza Casimiro, Spirit Disco, Metoux and Mekafore while celebrating in Sir Joan’s funkiest halls – ghastly style. Kick off is at 11pm though pre-party dinner is available through enquiry.
And while this happening is technically sold out, it wouldn’t be a complete roundup without mention of Pikes’ infamous Halloween bash. The Brothers Grim present ‘A Dance With The Devil’, an evening of frightening fun across the lavish rock n’ roll grounds at this San Antonio hideaway. Those lucky enough to have bagged a ticket will see a completely overhauled Pikes and an infestation of ghoulish actors on site to deliver unexpected chills! Missed out this time? Keep this on high priority for next year!
The dress code to all of the aforementioned events? As over-the-top as possible! If there’s one place and one night you can dare to stretch your imaginations, it’s Halloween on Ibiza. Let the freakish games begin…
